Guide to Renting Homerentals Property - Brisbane

 

Applying for Tenancy

When you apply to rent a property through us, you will be asked to fill out an application form. Every person over the age of 18 who wishes to reside at the premises, must complete an application form. In filling out this form, you will be asked to identify yourself, the same way as many institutions including Banks ask for identification.

HomeRentals Queensland asks for 100 points of Identification. Below are listed acceptable forms of ID and we would ask you to forward these along with your completed application form.

  1. Drivers License:   40 points
  2. Passport:   40 points
  3. Photo ID:    30 points
  4. Pay Slips:   20 points
  5. Medicare Card:   20 points
  6. Electricity Bill:   10 points
  7. Bank Statement   10 points
  8. Birth Certificate:   30 points
  9. Previous Landlord Reference:   20 points

 

In addition to this, you will be asked to supply information about yourself on the application form. This will include personal and employment details, personal references and current and previous addresses.

We shall also ask you to agree in writing, that we may conduct whatever searches and checks deemed necessary, to authenticate your documents and the information provided to support your application. If you do not sign this DECLARATION, your application will not be processed. Be assured that at all times, your right to privacy will be respected and any information will remain in confidence and any exchange of information will be strictly on a ‘need to know’ basis.

Once we have received all your documentation, it usually takes between 24 and 48 hours to process your application, depending on the availability and response times of Employers, Landlords and your referees.

Once your application has been approved by us, we shall present your application to the owner of your property for their approval.

If you are successful, we will ask you for I weeks rent as a holding deposit for your Property. This fee must be received within 24 hours of being notified that your application was successful. It is only then , that the property will be removed from the availability list. It will then form part of the monies required at the commencement of your Tenancy.

Monies required at the commencement of your Tenancy will always consist of a Bond, which equates to 4 weeks rent, along with an additional 2 weeks rent. (Your holding deposit forms part of these 2 weeks).

Your Bond will then be lodged with the RTA (Residential Tenancy Authority) by us on behalf of your owner.
